No boons left.
Oldish boon. If you can get any race boon you shouldbe able to trade for one on the boon trading thread.
Stock up now! supplies are limited. Just play or DM a game with a tiefling as a tiefling and you're good to go do not play a pre gen
4. Wayang (depending on how long until they become available)

That website and video were horrible on their own merits. The malarky was obvious just from watching the video and what he "interpreted" from it. No other propaganda was necessary. It was making claims that were not supported by what was shown. I pointed that out, you make ad homs without answering it.
I haven't blamed everyone.
you won't look further than the propaganda Hamas suppliesThose of us who follow such things already know why (the implication being that anyone that disagrees with you isn't following things)
Hey, if you don't want to keep an open mind about stuff, I can't force the issue.(calling people close minded)
You have an angry, rhetorical , passive aggressive rant that meets resistance with ad homs, NOT an argument.
What liberal bias would that be?
That Hamas cannot solve the situation.
That the situation is almost entirely Israels fault.
The Israel's retribution for the rocket attacks is a massive over reaction
That Israel is the one killing the majority of the civilians (around 800 at last count, compared to Hamas's 2) Israel not shooting back would eliminate over 99% of the innocent deaths.

Kinda hard to build shelters when Hamas keeps diverting the concrete to build tunnels into Israel.
You can't substantiate your claims.
You need to blame everyone for the problem with the argument your sources are making.
When someone calls you on the dissonance between the claims and the evidence, you can't back up the connection, you hop to something completely different and unrelated.
Its not people's bias leading to the conclusions you don't like here. Either you're making really, really horrible arguments for your position or reality's well known liberal bias is showing again.
The grand lodge:
Ambrose Valsin: Announcement! Starting this year will will allow unlimited number of kitsune to join our field teams!
"Woo hoo! now i don't have to hide." *turns into a kitsune*
"Me either!" *wolfs out*
"Me too!" *pops into foxform*
Ambrose facepalm. "Is anyone here NOT a kitsune?"
So you're trying to say that the video shows that they were hamas rockets, or bombs, NOT israeli shells ? And he thinks he can tell that from the video. The guy couldn't even figure out where the market was.
The guy sounds like a 9 11 "truther"

What are you trying to say? You are making random conspiracy statements and expecting me to refute the crazy without knowing which thought process it is.
Articulate your specific claim. Are you trying to say "the rockets are hitting people of this age group, therefore they're mostly hitting terroritsts? "
It looks just like the population of the rest of gaza If there are slightly more males thats no surprise: they're more likely to be demonstrating or staying in high risk areas. If the shelters only have room for so many people, the women and children go and the men stay at home.
Doug's Workshop wrote:
I have NO idea what you're trying to say here. Are you trying to say that there were not multiple bombs?
Multiple bombs were used. There was the big plume of smoke the guy was filming, there was the one that went off while he was filming, and I'm pretty sure there was another one nearby that the crowd was leading the ambulance to.
"the link" is less than informative. He has enough links to different things to tie the girlscouts to global warming.

An epic level ranger could not track this guys thought process, or how anything in the video relates to anything he's saying.

Listen to the narrator at :30 in the video. You can see with your own eyes that this isn’t a crowded or busy market, nor were there 160 wounded.
No. You can't. You can't see the market from this video. You can see ambulances pulling up with people telling the emt's "this way this way" but not what they're being led to, which I think is behind the graffiti'd wall. You can also see a big plume of smoke off in the distance, which is why this guy broke out the camera in the first place. For all I (or this guy) know THATS the market bombing.
Yes, the video shows a bomb going off in an empty parking lot, but what, pray tell, were those people flagging the ambulance down for ?
This video shows an attack on a relatively open space does not mean that all of the other bombs hit a relatively open space.

Stop evading the argument by putting words people didn't say in their mouth.
If you link something that is malarkey, accept the possibility that people rejecting that malarkey is because its malarkey, not because they are closed minded.
If that's the only type of support you can find for your position, reconsider your position rather than crying that the audience is unfair.
Let me see if i have this strait?
Half elves can take human,elf, or half elf favored class bonuses because they count as both and because of this post
Half orcs can take half orc and human bonuses (but not orc because everything orc is banned)
This post means that Aasimar with scion of humanity, which normally could take alternate favored class bonuses can't, despite most Alaternate class bonuses being in the advanced players guide
So quit acting like the outsiders were just flat-out better all around. All they really did was be the first races to really compete with humans.
If you can show otherwise I would.
Your options are terrible, and the advantages only last a level, if that. If you're going to divide your list down into hundreds of pieces, how many more pieces ARE they the best option for? Hundreds of them compared to your paltry list.
Please tell me what character type they're a poor choice for, given the blood of angels/fiends books?
They could have avoided all this headache if they had just kept those race options open. I hate that PFS is requiring a boon to play something that was previously legal to use. They need to open up more options for players, not take options away.
And then would have had the continued headache of all outsider parties.
Better to rip the bandaid off and have it hurt badly for just a little while than to continue the dull ache for years.

You have the power to explode this Zionist garrison state from within, sparking off international proletarian socialist revolution throughout the region and freeing the various peoples of the Middle East from the rule of the murderous mullahs, sinister sheiks, callous colonels and, um, (I can't think of an adjective that starts with "Z") Zionists!
More seriously, can we keep the hard to convince people of need to change to the thing that absolutely NEEDS to change? In this case the basic humanity of the Palestinians. Tying an unpopular idea to another one just makes it harder for either to happen.
According to the rules as they are written in the Advanced Race Guide, Scion of Humanity makes the Aasimar "a humanoid (human) for any effect related to race". Favoured class options are effects related to race.
Which I think is trumped by the PFS specific rule that for the advanced race guide you can only shop within your species. Linky
Applying that to half elves would give me a headache though.
Its regular gaming ettiquite. You'll be fine.
What to expect when you're expecting a pfs table:
What to expect, lets say the game starts at 7
Game starts at 7
6:55 people start to trickle in
Folks eat, gossip, get settled in.
7:15 Geek soduku! People finalize how many people they have for which table. The veterans will then decide who's playing what character, trying to balance out levels, tiers, and party composition. The DM desperately tries to sneak in one more reading of he scenario
7:30: people get going. There's a mission briefing that one person will be paying attention to while most players find dice and minis check character sheets, phones,and chronicle sheets to make last minute purchases. You will get a flurry of 5 or six mispronounced names without much clear idea whether drendle drang is a person you're talking to, a place you want to go, or a particularly nasty curse you want to avoid.
You'll have a chance to ask questions, gather information and make knowledge checks to get some idea of what you're in for.
There will be ~ 4 encounters, usually some mooks for one fight, a trap or three, some sort of a skill or social challange, some sort of strong monster thats usually more likely to kill you than the boss, and then a solo or near solo boss fight. These will inevitably involve some "i'm over here he's over there what are you doing how are you searching how does that rule work" while trying to keep the game moving.
The encounters will test adventuring basics. Can you attack at both melee and ranged. Can you deal with swarms and other unusual creature types. Can you deal with damage reduction and incoporeal critters.
10:30 the boss fight starts! Hurrry!
11:05 The dm hurridly signs chronicle sheets and hands them out with a "go ahead fill them out"
Grab stuff get out the door hang out in the parking lot for a bit to come back to reality then head home.
What you should know
Your character is a member of the pathfinder society: the out of game and in game group of murderho..erm.. gentlemen explorer archeologists. This is
Go on a pre made adventure. Finish it. Get a chronicle sheet. Usually you get 1 xp. Get 3 xp, level up. Wash rinse repeat.
Confusing things: Tiers and subtiers
A level 1 fighter adventuring with a level 11 fighter would be dead before seeing the first boss. Adventures have ranges that you need to be in to play them. Typically they range from 1-5, 3-7, 7-11. Within that, the DM averages the level of the party and decides on high or low tier, so for example if you're all new and playing the 1-5 , You get a couple of kobolds. If there are enough level 4s and 5s in your group, you'll be fighting kobold fighters and a shaman.
You'll pick it up fast enough, don't worr if you're confused.
Golden mean fallacy. Just because two people are fighting does not mean that they are both equally responsible.
We can't give you all citizenship, because then you could vote out our theocratic state.
We can't let you all return, because you could vote out our theocratic state.
We can't let you have concrete, because you might try to use it to resist the oppression of our theocratic state.
Anyone else beating the -20 spot check to see what the problem is here?

And, the western bank has it's own issues. In the most recent round of peace talks, they refused to acknowledge Israel as a Jewish state.
Of course they don't. That gives them a right to refuse the right of return, deny people the ability to vote, and continue their oppression if thats what it takes to maintain a jewish state.
Well, you've been exiled for a while now... ow ow ow ow ow sorry, sore point.. ow ow ow ow.
I don't think risen guard is a scenario boon though.
Except the eucalyptus tree for some strange reason. Apparently they're supposed to have australia or something...
Yes, yes, you've said so already. I believe there was a comment about splitting atoms, or something. Opinion, though, and if people are going to be concerned over RAW, I have yet to see a good reason why it wouldn't be worded like Versatile Performance is.
You're assuming that everything is worded the same when it patently is not in this game, mostly because it would be boring to read.
Your argument that there is a difference between the two and that the difference is raw is based on the notion that there is only one way to phrase something, and that is patently not the case.
Untrained: 1d20 + ability modifier + racial modifier
Trained: 1d20 + skill ranks + ability modifier + racial modifier
Trained Class Skill: 1d20 + skill ranks + ability modifier + racial modifier + 3
The skill check and the bonus to it are the same thing, other than adding the D 20.
It was only an economic difference insofar as the souths agrarian model required slavery for individuals to amass large amounts of wealth.
The south was explicitely clear on why it was trying to succeed
. But an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery, has led to a disregard of their obligations, and the laws of the General Government have ceased to effect the objects of the Constitution. The States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa, have enacted laws which either nullify the Acts of Congress or render useless any attempt to execute them. In many of these States the fugitive is discharged from service or labor claimed, and in none of them has the State Government complied with the stipulation made in the Constitution. The State of New Jersey, at an early day, passed a law in conformity with her constitutional obligation; but the current of anti-slavery feeling has led her more recently to enact laws which render inoperative the remedies provided by her own law and by the laws of Congress. In the State of New York even the right of transit for a slave has been denied by her tribunals; and the States of Ohio and Iowa have refused to surrender to justice fugitives charged with murder, and with inciting servile insurrection in the State of Virginia. Thus the constituted compact has been deliberately broken and disregarded by the non-slaveholding States, and the consequence follows that South Carolina is released from her obligation. Linky
Its not a coincidence that they split right after the election of Lincoln
A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes are hostile to slavery. He is to be entrusted with the administration of the common Government, because he has declared that that "Government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free," and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction.
It really. Really was about slavery. Arguments to the contrary are apoligia for the south so they didn't/don't have to admit they were unabashedly the bad guys here.
If you were going with a different argument I might buy that you had a legitimate interpretation difference, but that particular argument is nitpicking the rules to a level that would make writing anything impossible.

YOU say the entire occupation is illegal. This does not mean you are correct. From your point of view, because of that, the entire thing is considered one massive unlawful exercise.
Using the UN international law because its the only thing that generally applies..
The International Court of Justice, the UN General Assembly and the United Nations Security Council regards Israel as the "Occupying Power". UN Special Rapporteur Richard Falk called Israel’s occupation "an affront to international law." The Israeli High Court of Justice has ruled that Israel holds the West Bank under "belligerent occupation". According to Talia Sasson, the High Court of Justice in Israel, with a variety of different justices sitting, has repeatedly stated for more than 4 decades that Israel’s presence in the West Bank is in violation of international law.

I have no problem with the IDF killing members of a terrorist organization whose established goal is to annihilate Israel.
If they had any chance of actually doing this i might agree, but as it is its like shooting someone's chiuaua for trying to rip your face off.
Conversely, what is the difference between this and shooting members of the Isreali government, who's goal (that they've acted on) is to maintain a racist/theocratic state, take land, and impose ridiculously harsh economic conditions on millions of innocent people?
I will have a problem with the land being occupied permanently after the military action.
Its been 50 years and its still expanding. At what point do you say is permanent?
Despite this, however, when it comes to a 'moral high ground', they are well above Hamas, though obviously quite below the innocent bystanders.
Well thats just an opinion...
Is it a justified one though? There is a difference.
My point was coming from the guy who said "you will be lucky get my healings spells if you don't have your own CLW wand" If you get cure wounds on your spell list and its prepared or you can drop for it but you refuse to use your daily spell allotment to help the party win then you should expect to fail every mission
No. A thousand times no.
Most healing spells are a waste of resources that could otherwise go into far more productive things, either preventing damage or proactive healing via making something dead. They are inefficient. Healing simply has not scaled with the damage things can do either in between editions or with the power creep of splat books.
Healing spells do. not. keep. up . with. damage. you HAVE to use wands in between combats and save the heals for in combat emergencies.
